Now this, from National Review, is just sad:
[T]he Obama presidency has been a trainwreck of Carter-esque magnitude. Almost every historical predictor shows that Romney should have a sizeable lead.
So, give him one. That's National Review's solution. It isn't that Obama's presidency has been anything but a "trainwreck," or that Romney is the most gobsmackingly boo-booing nominee in American political history. No, it's that the polls are all wrong. They've been counting way, way too many Democrats, the little devils.
Republicans should be more optimistic than the timid souls that populate our TV screens seem to be.
Indeed, some on the right are simply inventing more agreeable polling statistics.
I said this is "sad," but I should have said it's exemplary: perfectly exemplary modern-day conservatism. Don't like the idea of climate change? Deny it. Don't care to ponder the empirical catastrophe of supply-side economics? Ignore it. Find it difficult to justify the idiotic notion of more tax cuts as revenue boosters? Well, then, just scream that you're right and everyone else is wrong, wrong, wrong and leave it at that--right after noting that Mitt Romney is, of course, ahead.
